>> and so the next time we might get some rain where we really need to pinpoint it like that is later this week perhaps? >> that's right. in fact, before then we are looking at a warmup. it started yesterday in some parts of the bay area. as we head outside now it's windy. you see from our camera here shaking on top, and we are look at those northerly winds taking over at the surface already. that's inhibiting the fog development out there. later on today the north winds allowing for temperatures to climb into the 60s all throughout the day. so live doppler 7hd not picking up any precipitation right now. in fact, we are dry. and the winds, with that offshore component, inhibiting that fog development. will we do have a then veil of higher clouds around and that's what's keeping the temperatures up from the upper 40s to about 50. san jose, san francisco. 46 in half moon bay with a cool 36 in napa. got upper 30s again in
5:48 am
concord, but overall the warming has begun from livermore to fremont. temperatures have not been allowed to drop. and, in fact, we are looking at about nine degrees warmer at the coast this morning. so as you head on out, certainly chilly and with a few areas of fog this morning with looks like basically much of that confined in the san joaquin valley and through the delta. in fact where we usually get that eacherly breeze and that fog, that is being shut off by a northeasterly win. the next couple days featuring warmer weather today and tomorrow and the cool down coming our way on tuesday as the wind shifts to an on shore component and the rain arrives by thursday. here's a look at the numbers today. everyone in the 60s. mid-60s. san francisco only has 63, but still with your average high at 58, that's five degrees above average. north end of the bay, 8 degrees above the average, as well as oakland from 65. you average 67. so notice that the numbers today

5:50 am
livermore at 64. cloudy skies around the monterey bay right now. if you are headed down to watsonville, no day there with the tree lighting later this afternoon. numbers should be in the low 60s and the sunset sunday celebration, and, of course, the 49ers today in the mid-60s, under plenty of sunshine. another nice day tomorrow. cooling tuesday and rain, scattered showers we will call it wednesday and could linger into thursday and maybe rain into next weekend. if we do so that it looks like colder systems and that could bring more sierra snow. we will see. >> i know they would love it up there. thank you, lisa. if you are traveling, eats usually good advice to take underwear and toiletries in your carry on in case your luggage gets lots. that's usually good advice. here's michael finney with problem involved. >> if you ask me what to pack in the carry on bags, i would say those things you can't do without. good advice usually.
